Trompenburg Gardens & Arboretum
This garden extraordinaire is a unique and significant addition to Rotterdam’s parks. It may also be Rotterdam’s best-kept ‘green secret’. Trompenburg Gardens & Arboretum is a botanical garden where construction started around 1820. It now houses an impressive collection of trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs and tubers. The monumental garden is in Kralingen, on the edge of the city centre, and is comprised of different types of gardens. Tip: for coffee and cake, visit De Uithoek, Trompenburg’s teahouse, or book a guided tour or themed walk.
